downtown and high rises downtown consuming a big part of the energy and so they are more sensitive to fluctuation and is rates. really though, as it would apply to residential customers, fluctuation and is rates as they occur on the market, would be greater than they will be under a regime that is based upon local fixed capital cost and is that is what the build out will do you end up with over half of the power supply in a fair short period of time. being behind the meter and being essentially hardware and performance based rather than market or fuel-based. so, from the point of view of the commercial customer, you know, there are now over a thousand municipallies in the united states over c c a service and there has not been to my knowledge been a proem with which the program commence with a rate increase now clearly if the program commences with a rate increase that will send a negative signal to the commercial customers the approach we are taking here does not require a rate increase which actually shows surplus and is potential discounts for customers that sign on for this

. melissa: the energy administration says on average if you have natural gas, it's $200 more this winter, better than heating oil at $450 more. that's average. people elsewhere, obviously, on the other end of that. on the east coast, you could pay more. i wonder how long does the cold have to last in order for us to feel the pinch? it's winter. always cold. this is not a big surprise. i mean, we knew this was coming. >> right. it is. you know, what happens, i think, with price projections, remember prices for the last few winters have been well below normal when you compare it to the price of oil and natural gas. natural gas prices are coming off historic lows, and while we are paying more, we're paying a lot less than we did, say, you know, five years ago. if you put it in that perspective, it's a lot better. you know, the problem, too, i think when you look at the heating fuels, it's not only here in the u.s. having these cold temperatures driving upment prices. if you look at europe, you look at asia, they, also, are having record cold so even if it warms up here, the pressure from th

hacked, imports jumped. particularly for energy resources such as crude oil and liquefied natural gas or llg. they accounted for one-third of all imports. lng imports charged more than 25% from 2011 levels. that's because the gas was needed to fuel power plants. most nuclear plants in japan are offline for inspection following the mar 11 crisis at the fukushima daiichi. lng prices also stayed high throughout the year, due to stronger demand from emerging countries. another reason for the boost in imports has been a certain reversal in currency markets. the yen began weakening at the end of last year. the yen has continued to weaken and the new prime minister shinzo abe's bold economic policy. this corporation is one of japan's major trading companies. it imports lng from asia and the middle east. they expect imports of lng to be at least as high as last year, but the cost will be much higher as the value of the yen continues to drop. >> translator: we are really getting a triple punch in the shortage of lng supplies, the high price of the gas and the depreciation of the yen. as an ene

developing energy here for decades. we need to protect their environment. we have a strict quarantine system to protect the integrity of the environment. forty years on, it's still a class-a nature reserve. it's our job to look after them. ...it's my job to look after it. ♪ ♪ >> pelley: a new study is finding that smoking is taking a much greater toll on women than it used to. according to research in today's "new england journal of medicine," back in the '60s, women who smoked had three times the risk of dying of lung cancer; now the risk is 25 times higher. one reason: women have been starting to smoke earlier, and they are smoking more. another threat to women is sexual abuse, and, according to the c.d.c., nearly one in five women has been raped. and in more than half of those cases, the rapist was an intimate partner. today, america's ob-gyns put out guidelines to help doctors deal without sexual abuse, and jon lapook is here to talk about that. >> they're talking about other forms of abuse including birth control sabotage. that's where a man interferes with a woman's contraception f
to be a fast mover. it's not really tapping a lot of moisture. it will have energy with it as it moves on through and it will be a fast process. i think we'll get what we'll get between now and before the time the sun comes up. maybe lingering flurries for the morning rush hour. but this weak low with its fast movement could deposit just enough snow to make for some slippery spots and the crews are out trying to treat the roads, but the pavement is colder than the air temperature, which is mighty cold. we are worried any snow that we get together, powdery and light as it will be, will be quick to stick. so most everything should be covered, at least those areas that get the snow. far to the north, might not get too much. in the district, it will be closer to a dusting. those untreated surfaces will be slick. there could be some delays. the best chance is south of d.c., because there is an area that could get more. and then we'll be tracking a second system that might be more widespread for friday. we'll talk more about that and get an update on temperatures. they have dropped here at 1
republic. >> one shining light in ireland's economic gloom is green energy, especially wind, where investment is booming all across the landscape. today's deal is part of that expansion. supporters say it will save money for british consumers as it promises to be cheaper than electric generated from wind in the north sea. but to work, the plan requires hundreds of new turbines to be built all across the flat and boggy irish midland. building wind farms on bogland has already been done successfully here in on the island. but to generate the green electricity needed to power three million u.k. homes is going to require much bigger turbines than the ones you see here. in fact, it will need some of the biggest ever built in the world. campaigners say the giant wind farms will be a blot on the landscape of a country that trades on its unspoiled green image. irish ministers disagree, saying the energy deal is just a first step, and tough planning laws will protect the countryside. >> i think there's a mutual interest here for both countries. and ireland doesn't want a wind farm at every
that with the consent of the senate, i will do everything in my power, summon all my energy and focus to build on her record and on the president's vision. senator mccain, as he mentioned, is a longtime friend. we met here in the senate coming from very different political positions and perspectives, but, you know, we found common ground. i will never forget standing with him in hanoai, in the cell which he spent many years of his life listening to him talk about that experience. i will always be grateful for his partnership in helping to make real peace with vietnam by establishing the most significant process in the history of our country or in any country, for the accounting of missing and dead in any war. and then for working to lift the embargo and ultimately normalize relations with an old enemy. john had every reason to hate, but he didn't and instead we were able to help heal deep wounds and end the war that had divided too many people for much too long. as we talk about war and peace and foreign policy, i want all of us to keep in our minds, as i think we do, the extraordinary men and women
all of my energies to working with my fellow commissioners and the extremely dedicated and talented men and women of the staff of the s.e.c. to fulfill the agency's mission to protect investors, and to ensure the strength, efficiency, and transparency of our capital markets. >> sreenivasan: the president re-nominated richard cordray to lead the consumer financial protection bureau. the former ohio attorney general has held that position for the last year, but his temporary appointment will expire in december. >> we understand that our mission is to stand on the side of consumers: our mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters and see that they're treated fairly. for more than a year we've been focused on making consumer finance markets work better for the american people. we approach this work with open minds, open ears, and great determination. >> sreenivasan: the president initially used a recess appointment to put cordray in the job, to get around senate republican opposition. senate leaders agreed today on a plan to limit the use of filibusters, at least somew
of this disease, depending on the variation of protein energy malnutrition that we see, can be as high as 30 to 50%. usually the children die from routine infections like diarrhea or pneumonia. in fact, pneumonia is the most common cause of death. children who are severely malnourished appear anorexic. they do not want to eat. they're often very depressed. their heads are low. they stop talking. they stop walking, and they're severely dehydrated and suffering from infectious diseases. perhaps the most extreme case of malnutrition the team witnessed was annis-- a tiny wisp of a girl, two and a half years old. annis is just skin and bones and a head. and i looked at her, and i looked at the weight, and i asked the mother how old she is and the mother told me. and i said, "it's not possible." so i took annis myself back to weigh. i saw the scale, it said 4.2 kilos, took annis off, measured her height, put her back on the scale. i still couldn't believe it. it was amazing to me that annis was still alive. the highest mortality for children so severely malnourished occurs in the first few days. if you

, not a big storm system, but a few waves of energy that will not be enough that we can see a few rain drops into the up coming weekend. we get sun in by the afternoon. >> not too bad at all. >> well, coming up. the hiv break through, it's making headlines around the world. >> in a promising break through, stanford scientists have developed hiv resistent cells, they cut and paste resistent genes in to the infected virus, it destroyed the cells and prevented them from moving into the rest of the system. >>> let's check in with the newsroom, see what is happening there. >> thanks guys, the warriors welcomed one of the best teams in the nba to oracle, and it came down to the line, we have the highlights. and two months after san francisco celebrated a world series, the 49ers are two weeks away from possibly their own parade. how they kicked off the final leg for the quest for six, next in sports. >> ahmed fareed from the sports desk. the sexual assault allegations of michael crabtree is not holding up under investigation. the police have not found evidence of an assault and witnesses who say th
this very earnest person talk about how she's invested so much time and energy into bullying, i found myself asking, how do we know it's working? there are a lot of things that seem intuitively plausible and appear to be anecdotally moving the ball forward, but we need to move beyond that. we need to, among other things, figure out what indeed are practices that work and we need to understand in so doing that what may work in sioux falls may not work in san francisco. we get that. so solutions need to be taylored to local communities, solutions need to reflect the fact that there are many, many dimensions to this issue. let me tell you about the few dimensions that we see in the course of our work. russ land is the assistant attorney general and we've taken partnership to new levels with the department. they have put out guidance on bullying and distributed it to all the jurisdictions around the country because we've often seen in our work that there are so many superintendents and school leaders that are doing great things, but there are others that either have the wrong policies in p
in criminal justice and all your energies and efforts on its behalf. we know this is an issue that is of great importance to the state of california and to the nation. of course we have the opportunity to yet again lead the way here in california. we're offering a bill this year, s.b.-1506 which would redefine the crime of simple possession of a drug from felony to misdemeanor. there are 13 other states, and the federal government which already do this and in the 13 other states, we have the data that shows that we get better results, better outcomes, meaning safer communities, and surprisingly the states include not only the large eastern states of pennsylvania and new york, but also states like mississippi, south carolina, west virginia, wyoming, iowa, all of which use this mid deem charge rather than felony. and what we find in these 13 other states is that there are higher rates of drug treatment participation, lower rates of drug use, and even slightly lower rates of violent and property crime. so again, we can prove we can have safer communities. and then of course there are the unintend
